Reasonable place for a simple meal

Went for a meal on the day of our arrival in the area. Restaurant is straightforward, reasonable value and reasonable food. Service was fine.

Arrived at 12.30pm on Saturday (market day) with our two children, aged 4 and 2. Ordered, got drinks (OK house red wine, nothing special). No bread. We had chosen this place because it offered a sensible range - crepes for the kids, grown up meals for the grown ups. Crepes arrived quickly, which was a relief after a number of... More

Nice location in the walking zone of Loches. Food was filling, traditional and okay. Wine was very good. Service could have been friendlier but okay.

Decent food, if a little overpriced. Enjoyed the steak with marchand du vin sauce. Don't bother with bottled wine, just order a carafe - cheaper and just as good.

Good value meal. Wide choice between crepes and full meals. Cobbled area, nice and cool in very hot weather.

We were, so we gave this place a try for lunch. It was a fine May day so we took the outside option, and perused the menus. We chose from the array of galettes, savoury pancakes for the non-French speaking. Mrs R went fishy, with an assortment of seafood in a cider and cream sauce, which she claimed was very... More

This restaurant is conveniently located on the main pedestrian street in Loches. We had not reserved a table but could see that whilst the pavement tables were full there were a number of spare tables inside. We asked the maitre d' if there was a table available for four people (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and even though there were... More

this not-too-expensive restaurant on the main street of the historic area has basic crêpes and other dishes. Early in the evening it is not too crowded, but later on they are understaffed for the number of tables. I will say that they have toys for the kids when the waiting is long.

No more than so-so for what one pays. Hard to find a decent restaurant in Loches.

If you're after a good, basic grill or pancake then I would recommend this restaurant. We went there on my son's birthday. The staff picked up on this and served him with a birthday pancake complete with candle, which we thought was a lovely touch. They had already provided a toy, a highchair and a kindly word for my grandson.... More
